West Division County Match Week Day 2

Ayrshire had another sucessful day on day two of the west division inter county matches. They carried on from their good performance in the morning foursomes to achieve an excellent win over defending champions Renfrewshire 5-4.

The afternoon singles were closely fought with the score sitting at 3-2 in Renfrewshires favour with the last match on the course between Gillian McGinlay and Linzi Allan heading up the 18th all square. Both players missed the green with their second shots. Gillian chipped onto the green from the rough and narrowly missed her putt for a 4. Linzi played an excellent shot from the greenside bunker and sunk her putt for a 4 to win the match and secure the vital point for Ayrshire to draw the singles 3-3 but to win the match 5-4 overall.

The results in the singles were:

Megan Briggs beat Rachael McQueen 6&5
Alyson McKechin beat Alex Glennie 4&2
Gillian McGinlay lost to Linzi Allan 1 down
Liz Stewart lost to Catherine Malcolm 3&2
Carol Whyte lost to Jenny Linklater 6&5
Eilidh Briggs beat Lesley Hendry 7&5

In the other match Lanarkshire beat Dunbarton and Argyll 7-2

If Ayrshire can beat Lanarkshire tomorrow then they will win the West Division Inter County Match week. If you can, please come and support the team in your green jumpers and hopefully we will all be celebrating an Ayrshire win tomorrow night.
